Going from full-screen to windowed (Windows®) works, but the monitor resolution is not changed back to what it originally was (until the game closes).

What is the fix for this?


Thank you,

How do you change the resolution in the first place?
You should use the same method to change it back. For example, you can look at the first NeHe tutorial, which changes resolution with the ChangeDisplaySettings function, and uses ChangeDisplaySettings(NULL,0) to change it back to the default value.

Yep that fixed it thank you.
I missed that tidbit because it was in the shut-down code and I assumed it should only be called then and did not investigate further.


Everything is perfect now and no resource leaks!


Thank you.
